School students of all ages will now be able to learn more about Australia’s important agricultural sector through the Australian Government’s $2 million Agriculture in Education initiative.
Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Christopher Pyne MP, has launched the first set of online teaching and learning resources created under the initiative.
The materials showcase the diversity and economic importance of food and fibre production in Australia, and are aligned to Australian Curriculum learning areas including science and geography.
Topics covered by the materials include: designing and making a financial plan for a market garden, free range chicken farming, food security, and sustainable production practices in food and fibre.
More than 75 high quality digital learning resources aligned to the Australian Curriculum are now freely available to schools online.
